Gedebe accessories are widely coveted and always 100% made in Italy
The Gedebe Label
Gedebe is a sophisticated union of traditional Italian craftsmanship, mixing crystals, stones, stud embellishments, exotic leathers and luxurious embroidery to create one of a kind pieces.
The range consists of unique handbags, shoes and accessories and has been praised by Pitti Immagine as a true standout, earning it a lot of fanfare from top buyers and the press. Designer, Gedebe’s harmonious mix of fine leathers, crystals and embroidery has given the label a strong identity that’s always elegant and never excessive.
Meet the Gedebe Designer
Naples born Giuseppe Della Badia created the Gebebe brand when he was just 28 years old. Prior to this, he graduated law school, however from a young age, had always had a passion for craftsmanship. Early on, he discovered his love of combining traditional leather workmanship with the artistry of embellishment and embroidery.
“I completed my law studies, but while at university I used to work in sales for a haute couture clothing label on the weekend. I then earned a Master’s degree in fashion marketing at Milan’s Accademia del Lusso and realized that my desire for craftsmanship could be fulfilled only by fashion.” – Giuseppe Della Badia
Giuseppe got his start by embroidering denim bottoms and tops for his friends and then, almost by accident, he started making leather bracelets – the pieces that ultimately catapulted his career.
He accelerated his pace and began rapidly selling his creations and was determined to be part of the Massimo Bonini showroom; a worldwide company in the wholesaling of luxury shoes and accessories.
Of course he landed the partnership with the showroom and it was through that relationship that helped him get Gedebe into over 200 boutiques worldwide.
